Diocese of Virginia posts proposed resolutions

Katharine Jefferts Schori will be in Richmond this coming weekend to kick off this year's Annual Council for the Diocese of Virginia (nice timing, as the briefs from the CANA congregations are filed with the Supreme Court of the Commonwealth of Virginia the same weekend). The Diocese of Virginia has also posted the proposed resolutions before Council and there are some humdingers. Check them out here.

I think a resolution will have to be submitted to reword the Articles of Religion Article XIX.

XIX. Of the Church.

The visible Church of Christ is a congregation of faithful men, in which the pure Word of God is preached, and the Sacraments be duly ministered according to Christ’s ordinance, in all those things that of necessity are requisite to the same.
As the Church of Jerusalem, Alexandria, and Antioch, have erred; so also the Church of Rome hath erred, not only in their living and manner of Ceremonies, but also in matters of Faith.

Whereas: In order to reconcile the Episcopal church to the historic "Articles of Religion," the following change to the Articles of Religion shall be made:

Resolved: To insert the words, "The Episcopal church" between the words "Jerusalem" and "Alexandria" in Article XIX of the Articles of Religion and that this resolution be submitted to the 2012 General Convention of the Episcopal church for incorporation into future prayer books.

Evidently, St. Anne's Reston is the "shadow" Diocese of VA.

Oh, that photo again! I recently discovered a look-alike, and have been resisting the urge to point out the similarity, but.....just google the couple of video-clips on YouTube of Mary Ellen Nesi singing the role of the evil Duke of Albany, Polinesso, in the opera 'Ariodante' by Handel. Unmistakably a similarly sinister visage!

For example, this one:

The great irony is that this aria 'Dover,giustizia,amor' ('Duty,justice, love') reveals the treachery of Polinesso who attempts to steal the hero's beloved by great stealth.....
